Ce ne sarebbe abbastanza per convincere Ian a farsi venire dei dubbi riguardo alla sua decisione di impegnarsi con Miro, il quale può solo sperare, a questo punto, che i sentimenti che legano lui e il suo partner siano talmente forti da resistere a tutto.

Never a Hero

Tucker Springs

A Tucker Springs Novel

Owen Meade is in need of a hero. Sheltered, ashamed, and ridiculed by his own mother for his sexuality, his stutter, and his congenital arm amputation, Owen lives like a hermit, rarely leaving his apartment. He hardly dares to hope for more… until veterinarian Nick Reynolds moves in downstairs.

Charming, handsome Nick steals past Owen’s defenses and makes him feel almost normal. Meeting his fiery, determined little sister, June, who was born with a similar amputation, helps too. June always seems to get her way—she even convinces Owen to sign up for piano lessons with her. Suddenly the only thing standing between Owen and his perfect life is Nick. No matter how much he flirts, how attracted to Owen he seems to be, or how much time they spend together, Nick always pulls away.

Caught between his mother’s contempt and Nick’s stubbornness, Owen makes a decision. It’s time to be the hero of his own story, and that means going after what he wants: not just Nick, but the full life he deserves.

When he and Reid come face-to-face after more than two years apart, they realize they’ve never let go.

Buddy Brady is older, sexy, and too damn distracting for David, and as the sexual tension builds, so does the suspicion around the repeated attacks—first in Chicago, then in New York. Someone is tracking them, and all clues point to a traitor in the shifter ranks. Worst of all, they could be after David’s family....

Lazar Thornton liegt das Dom-sein im Blut. Er ist Eigentümer und Betreiber des The Cage, eines florierenden Erotik-Shops, in dem auch seine engsten Freunde häufig anzutreffen sind: Bran, Max, Otto und die stets extravagante, heißblütige Miss Dré. Doch selbst die besten Freunde haben unterschiedliche Vorlieben – im Leben wie im Spiel.  

Mit seiner gut gelaunten, lockeren Art ist Lazar sowohl als Dom als auch als Lehrer sehr gefragt, aber vor der Liebe ist er bisher immer davongelaufen. Bis Ben Owen, ein ziemlicher Neuling in der Szene, blauäugig und lernbegierig daherkommt und Lazar diesem Sub alles beibringen möchte, was er weiß. Doch trotz der Offenheit, die für eine funktionierende Dom/Sub-Beziehung erforderlich ist, spricht keiner von beiden über Gefühle. Ben leidet unter der Ungewissheit, ob seine Liebe erwidert wird, da er sich seines Platzes in Lazars Leben nicht so sicher ist, wie er es gerne wäre. Lazar wird lernen müssen, das Herz seines Subs so gut zu lesen wie seine Gedanken, wenn er Ben wirklich in seinem Leben behalten möchte.

Au lieu de cela, les deux hommes deviennent d’improbables amis soumis à une attirance inexplicable qu’ils ne peuvent pas ignorer. Benny est peut-être celui qui aidera Zeke à mettre de côté sa quête de vengeance, si celui-ci est prêt à lâcher prise et à pardonner ce qu’il ne peut pas oublier… et à céder à une romance inattendue.

Ramen Assassin: Book One

When life gives Kuro Jenkins lemons, he wants to make ponzu to serve at his Los Angeles ramen shop.

Instead he’s dodging bullets and wondering how the hell he ended up back in the Black Ops lifestyle he left behind him. After rescuing former child star Trey Bishop from a pair of thugs in the middle of the night, he knows it’s time to pick up his gun again. But it seems trouble isn’t done with Trey, and Kuro can’t quite let go… of either the gun or Trey Bishop.

A GRAPHIC NOVEL ADAPTATION

Black & white interior illustrations with a color paperback cover.

Do you believe in love at first sight?

Paul Auster doesn't. Paul doesn't believe in much at all. He’s thirty, slightly overweight, and his best features are his acerbic wit and the color commentary he provides as life passes him by. He works a dead-end job in a soul-sucking cubicle, and his closest friends are a quasibipolar drag queen named Helena Handbasket and a two-legged dog named Wheels. 

Enter Vince Taylor.

Vince is everything Paul isn’t: hot, sexy, and confident. And for some reason, Vince pursues Paul relentlessly. Vince must be messing with him, because there is no way Vince could want someone like Paul.

But when Paul hits Vince with his car—in a completely unintentional if-he-died-it'd-only-be-manslaughter kind of way—he's forced to see Vince in a whole new light. The only thing stopping Paul from believing in Vince is himself—and that is one obstacle Paul can’t quite seem to overcome. But when tragedy strikes Vince's family, Paul must put aside any notions he has about himself and stand next to the man who thinks he's perfect the way he is.

A case of mistaken identity could lead to love for an aloof starship captain and a brilliant if underappreciated mechanic from the sticks—if they can survive the dangerous mission assigned to them.

Ginnovi Oshwald just needs someone to give him a chance. He can keep anything running, despite the “spark” his body produces that sometimes wreaks havoc with electronics. Gin gets his chance when Captain Lian Hartford comes to Tallahassee in search of a mechanic. The trouble is, he’s looking for Gin’s sister. But since he only has a name to go by, Gin tells a little white lie. What could go wrong?

Lian loves his ship and his work as a diplomat but has difficulty connecting with others—only partly because of his mixed human and alien heritage. Something about the eccentric mechanic intrigues him, though, and their easy friendship could become more… if they live long enough to broker peace between humanity and a hostile race while pacifying a crew that thinks Gin belongs in prison.

Fake Dating the Prince

Dreamspun Desires | #84

When fast-living flight attendant Brayden Wood agrees to accompany a first-class passenger to a swanky charity ball, he discovers his date—“Call me Flip”—is actually His Royal Highness Prince Antoine-Philipe. And he wants Brayden to pretend to be his boyfriend.

Being Europe’s only prince of Indian descent—and its only openly gay one—has led Flip to select “appropriate” men first and worry about attraction later. Still, flirty, irreverent Brayden captivates him right away, and Flip needs a date to survive the ball without being match-made.

Before Flip can pursue Brayden in earnest, the paparazzi forces his hand, and the charade is extended for the remainder of Brayden’s vacation.

Posh, gorgeous, thoughtful Prince Flip is way out of Brayden’s league. If Brayden survives three weeks of platonically sharing a bed with him during the romantic holiday season, going home afterward might break his heart….
